Extreme Athlete, Best-selling Author and Speaker on Peak Performance & Sales
Dan Waldschmidt is an elite ultra-runner, an internationally awarded business strategist and is considered to be one of the top sales thinkers in the world. His book EDGY Conversations has sold over 250,000 copies around the world and hit the Amazon best-seller list on 3 different continents.
Dan has spent his life attempting (and often achieving) the outrageous. He got the usual entry-level sales job right out of college, but then he changed the sales process, boosted revenue $50M, and became CEO by the time he was 25. After expanding offices and driving even more growth over the next few years - he would go on to sell that technology company to a much larger competitor, delivering tremendous value to the shareholders.
Known as an industry disruptor, Dan refuses to accept business as usual - making him an unconventional, yet highly effective, strategist to some of the world’s largest companies.
After founding (and then selling) his technology company, several Fortune 100 companies began to recruit Dan for senior executive level positions. But instead of joining a big company, Dan decided to build a consulting company to provide strategy to the most powerful companies in the world. Through his advice & coaching he’s helped multinational organizations conquer the world.
Dan shares his insights daily on his popular blog which Dow Jones called "one of the top sales blogs anywhere in the world." He has also been a popular contributor to Business Insider and has been published in Forbes, INC Magazine, Bloomberg, Yahoo, Vanity Fair, Wall Street Italia and dozens of other popular magazines around the world.
Having devoted years to studying over 1,000 of the world’s most unlikely high performers, he understands exactly what it takes to disrupt an industry, create a new conversation, and drive massive success.
